Remembering Former Governor Joe Kernan

August 03, 2020
Joe Kernan was Irish before he was a naval officer, a prisoner of war before he was mayor, humble before he was governor, and beloved eternally by those who knew him. We lost the governor last week and extend our condolences to his wife Maggie and all who knew and loved him. On this week’s “Leaders and Legends” podcast, we talk with Tina Noel, Kip Tew, and Jim Shella about Governor Kernan’s career, character, and why many of us seemingly had our first meeting with him in a bar.  Very few people personify the word ‘hero' like Joe Kernan did and we hope you enjoy this tribute to his life of service.
